At this time of year as anyone who is married to a hunter knows, it is a wonderful time of "quiet solitude" My DH is a bow hunter so he has been out for weeks now and with the gun season starting next week, the season of my marathon sewing has begun! I have been at my sewing table nonstop and will have all my Christmas projects completed way ahead of time. It is so nice to have the house to myself all day on the week-ends!!!! I can "do my thing" and not worry about breakfast, lunch or dinner. I secretly hope he doesn't get anything because i love the deer but i do respect his right as a hunter. Besides, he totally supports my quilting so it works out for us....he hunts, I shop fabric and quilt!
